Grants available for biodiesel blender pump infrastructure

Advertisement

Nebraska

The Nebraska Soybean Board is seeking potential diesel retailers to be awarded grants to invest in equipment used to sell biodiesel blends at retail stations. NSB is offering up to $60,000 per station for blending reimbursements. The requirements are that the station offers B5 in the winter months and B20 in the summer months for at least two years. In addition to the grant money, the Nebraska Soybean Board will provide technical assistance with handling and storage of diesel and biodiesel blends, provide fuel quality monitoring services and even assistance with procuring biodiesel if needed. Nebraska is one of the top soybean producing states in the US and soybeans are currently the primary feedstock of biodiesel. These funds are provided by the Nebraska Soybean checkoff. The Nebraska Soybean Board has invested heavily into this emerging industry and would like to see biodiesel more readily available to users of diesel throughout the state of Nebraska. The goal of this program is to promote biodiesel use in Nebraska and further the industry nationally. To inquire about blender pump funding, please contact Andy Chvatal at andy@nebraskasoybeans.org, or call 402-441-3240. The nine-member Nebraska Soybean Board collects and disburses the Nebraska share of funds generated by the one half of one percent times the net sales price per bushel of soybeans sold. Nebraska soybean checkoff funds are invested in research, education, domestic and foreign markets, including new uses for soybeans and soybean products.
